Puerto Rico: Homeland location
Puerto Rico subbed for Caracas, Venezuela on Sunday night, where the fictional version of the CIA was running an anti-terrorist operation on the first episode of the season, led by the character Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend).
The scenes from Sunday’s episodes were filmed in Old San Juan, although more Puerto Rico locations could be reportedly be on the table for future episodes.
Meanwhile, the Venezuelan government was displeased: “Torre de David” goes Hollywood
What’s the reaction from the communicational hegemon? Check out this article from Alba Ciudad 96.3. FM., where the writer doesn’t just criticize Homeland for its anti-Venezuela bias, but also calls the show “anti-Muslim” and accuses it of being embedded with the C.I.A.
The reasons behind his conclusion? First, Homeland is one of Barack Obama’s favorite TV shows. Second, the show’s cast recently made a visit to the agency’s headquarters. Ergo, Obama told the C.I.A. to use Homeland in order to trash Venezuela’s image.
But . . . but. . .
